Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Patchy dense fog, with visibilities under a quarter-mile, gave way to sunny skies this afternoon. Temperatures are milder than Wednesday’s readings, when clouds lingered, reaching the upper 60s–about 10 degrees above normal.

High pressure across southern Canada represents a broad ridge of fair weather, keeping winds light, which is conducive to dense early morning fog. Some fog is expected again early Friday.

The weather will be increasingly milder heading into the weekend, with highs edging into the low to mid-70s. The next chance for showers will arrive Saturday evening ahead of a weakening cold front, with a few showers lingering into early Sunday.

The weather will remain unseasonably mild next week, with a slight cooldown midweek (60s).
